The Warpsmiths, referred to as the "Warpsmiths of Phaidon" also appear as a supporting race in three Big Finish Doctor Who spin-off Gallifrey (audio series) produced in 2005 and 2006. In these stories they are one of the major temporal powers of the universe who participate in political negotiations over the use of time technology. It is uncertain whether this was intended to be the same Warpsmiths as those created by Moore and Leach.
i was looking at comic trade website and the warpsmiths pop into my head and i wished they had a series. so i looked them up to see if anyone had done something new with them and what do i see on their wiki page...
im not sure if a bunch of teleporters would make for good audios though.
anyone else remember them? why didnt alan moore do more of these guys?
That reminds me, I need to track down a copy of Miracleman to read. I haven't yet, but I do remember the name from Gallifrey, definitely. It's funny, but the expanded universe is filled with these little nods and winks.
The MA novel, Millennial Rites, has unnamed appearances by Doctor Strange and John Constantine at the midpoint. Outside comics, the Sixth Doctor considers Trantor, the homeworld of the soon-to-fall Empire in the Foundation series, as a holiday destination in Profits of Doom before rejecting it as "too cosmopolitan". Benny mentions Blake's 7 as both a television series and a real-world terrorist group in one of the books. Jo stayed with Tara King of The Avengers for a while in Verdigris (although that book dealt quite deliberately and heavily with metafiction). The Eighth Doctor's likely been to Discworld and knew a Professor Bernard "--ermass" in the latter's older years.
There's an awful lot of it about, I'm sure I'm missing more than a few...
